I would have played CAT this week had cullers form not been poor.

I hate the fact that iv been going away from home with 4 forwards, way too attacking and am looking to rectify this asap

Ive replayed this game a few times with Fulham BW replaced by DY to see if that improves your win chances but it doesnt, the game still ends up 0-0.

playing CAT with DY instead of BW would have netted Fulham a 1-0 away win.

Interesting Paul, with Robben as a TM is there a way of holding him back so he plays from an ever so slightly deeper role to get the ball from his AM in tighter situations

I have tried the SUP command before with pienaar, it did work quite well I think or is that just because pienaar is a more suitable TM than Robben?

In terms of a new additional to how to use TM I would welcome MIX as at the moment unless I put SUP on Rooney its just him and Essien who really get into the game at all, limiting the need for other players around him.

One question I do have though is why he has been so ineffective in the past few games (12 goals scored by my team in the league is an indication of this - should this not have been more given his quality and if so why hasn't he?)

Thanks

Ben

cant really comment on past games as i dont have the match reports to look at but he may have been man-marked or other players he relied on to create space were marked.

One thing i would say is that Stevie Ireland may be a better foil for Rooney than Nasri cos Nasri is more of a dribbler and greedier than Ireland. A team of stars is not always the best combination, there has to be some "water carriers" in the team as well. Rooney will be fit next week and it'll be interesting to see how he plays alongside whoever you choose to play at DLDR.

I think the problem is Paul, after last weeks Rvp roasting where I left the middle of the park wide open with no BW, playing AM DY seems too open hence the AM BW

I know CAT is meant to be AM DY but would it screw the tactic up if I played AM BW ? Or is that being just too cautious ?

most of the time he did step back to receive the ball and i only see one occasion when Jagielka had to play a long ball to find him, he should be clever enough to do that on his own. But if you find it is a problem use the "GET" command.

yes you are right I tried playing AMDY and it made no difference to the match in any great sense. CAT is a fixed formation you should play GK LBCLCRRB LHAMDYRH TMCF else it wont work properly. Robben is very clever though and if you do choose to play BW instead of DY he might be able to make it work okay, worth a try maybe against Westham or Reading or Blackburn to see how it goes.

Paul, just wondering if there was any transfer news at all, if you have time of course.

Will, seems as though our initial discussions surrounding the game were probably right then.

Thanks Paul as ever -fantastic insight into everything!

attack 1 Toulalan AM - Totti - Ederson - dribble - avoids Bottinelli - dribble - skips past Pasquale - crosshigh - Quaglierella BIG striker - holds off Scurto - goes past Aogo - headshoot saved

attack 2 Moreno - Totti - obstructed - Toulalan - Totti - Ederson - dribble - skips Bottinelli - dribble - avoids Pasquale - cross - Cardozo CF - outjumps Scurto - goes past Aogo - headshoot saved

attack 3 Douglas - Totti - avoids Immobile - longpass - Cardozo - outjumps Scurto - goes past Aogo - heads down for - Quagliarella - avoids Pasquale - shoot saved corner

attack 4 Totti - Ederson - dribble - past Bottinelli - dribble - avoids Pasquale - crosshigh - Piatti ( he did see ST BIG and CF as well ) - holds off Scurto - goes past Aogo - headshoot saved corner

attack 5 Quagliarella gets possession - skips past Pasquale and Aogo - shhot saved

attack 6 Quagliarella gets possession - avoids Pasquale and Aogo - shoot goal

attack 7 Toulalan - Totti - Ederson - bad shortpass

attack 8 Toulalan - Totti - Ederson - dribble - beaten by Bottinelli

attack 9 Cardozo gets possession - Ederson - dribble - beats Guiza - dribble - avoids Bottinelli - dribble - fouled by Pasquale inj replaced by Andreoli

attacl 10 Toulalan - avoids Guiza - Totti - Ederson - dribble - avoids Bottinelli - dribble - avoids Andreoli - cutsin - shoot saved corner

attack 11 Toulalan - avoids Diogo - Totti - Ederson - dribble - past Bottinelli - dribble - Avoids Andreoli - sees STBIG and CF in the box - but crosses - Totti - outjumps Scurto - but is tackled by Aogo

attack 12 Mandanda - Schmelzer - Piatti - dribble - dribble - avoids Cicinho - dribble - avoids Scurto - sees STBIG and CF - crosseshigh - Quagliarella - headshoot saved

it has made a difference to your STs visibility as he has visible for each cross that came into the box. So I'd say that was working okay. As well as adding the BIg command Ive also made the more intelligent players do a BIG command on their own, so the better strikers will automatically make themselves BIG when crosses are coming over, but if you want to make sure you can still use BIG.

You only had 2 crosses in the game against Chelsea but Gyan was visible for both of them but tbh I did miss putting BIG in as his command, I guess it was because i was in such a rush yesterday, apologies for that, but he seems to have been intelligent enough to do it for himself, so in the end it was a good test.

Interesting that Ancona seem to get so many headers in. I think the comparison is really good.

Thanks Paul - one question I did have is how you found turning the strikers down this week - has it affected the amount of goals etc at all?

there weren't so many goals this week for sure

but alot of the top sides were playing away from home this week so it is hard to say definitively. Still we had good high scoring away wins for Real Madrid, Barcelona and Schalke. Bayern got 6 at home and Monaco got 4 at home, so still plenty of goals about outside the Premiership.

Thanks for this Paul, missed this one earlier! I guess SUP on Nasri could be an potential option then to lower his greediness and make him pass more to Rooney (although he is out for the next 2 weeks so one to potentially try after that)?

Thanks

Santos lost this week after I reviewed Anderson Dede and drafted him into the team. Playing LKCLCRRK DLDYDR STTMS2 away from home is not a good idea Smile I should really know that but thought I might get away with it against a weak Portuguesa side, not to be though. Should of played with ALDYAR in midfield really.

Surprised he's signed for Sporting Lisbon, thought a bigger club would have snapped him up seeing as he was on a free!

Would be interested to see how MIX played out against SLO and where i could possibly tweak this after scoring for fun in previous weeks.
